TRAVELING TO THE US
COMING TO AMERICA
You may be stressed thinking about coming to the United States, but we are here to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible. To help with that, we asked a few students to tell us about their experiences traveling to study in a new country.
Several students said that saving money was one of the most important things to do to prepare to come to the US. When you arrive, you will be responsible for paying for tuition, housing, transportation, and other expenses. This can get expensive! If you save up and plan your budget ahead of time, you won’t be worried that you can’t pay your bills.
Other students found that the culture of the United States was very different from their own, and so it took time to understand American culture and lifestyles. Food, clothing, laws, and beliefs in the United States may be very different than you are accustomed to, but that’s OK! Try and embrace the new and unique opportunities you will have while living in the United States.
Current students have a few suggestions for students coming to study at Nomen Global. One student suggests you “plan everything with time,” meaning don’t leave things to the last minute. The more prepared you are, the easier the transition will be. Other students encourage you to learn as much English as you can before you come, so that you will be ready to succeed at school and in life. It can be very challenging to get around if you do not have basic English skills.
It is very easy to feel stress and anxiety when you move to a new country, especially when you don’t know that country’s language or culture. Remember that you are not alone and we at Nomen Global are here to help you. While you may feel alone being so far from family and friends, we hope that you make great friends during your time studying at Nomen Global in Utah. Many people work hard so that you have success in everything you do!
